  • Purchasers will be notified by email if the status of an event changes
  • In the event of a postponement, tickets are automatically transferred to the new date, no further action is needed

If you have tickets to a cancelled event or are unable to attend on the new show date, please consider a Ruth Eckerd Hall credit for a future show at any of our venues or a donation of some portion of your purchase. As a not-for-profit community-based organization relying on both ticket sales and tax-deductible donations, your support now will prevent price increases and protect education programs. For those who love our venues and want to see us continue after these challenges, please consider one of the following ways that you can help us cross this bridge together:

For your safety

Please visit the individual event page for the latest safety guidelines for that event. We will continue to adhere and adjust our operating protocols as public health guidelines evolve.

We will continue to announce the latest event and safety information on this page and do our best to respond to your inquiries as soon as possible.
